lil bit pricey for what you're buying

Its unfortunate that its comes with lesser grade i7-7700 3.6GHz/GTX 1060 3gb.. its got poor ventilation with the larger plastic faceshield, so you'll have to take that off when gaming. The tower itself is very sturdy, well built chassis. I've added liquid cooling for the cpu and maxed out the 5 fan slot with additional fans, runs super cool during gaming and looks amazing! I love this PC, but do keep in-mind you are overpaying for the items you are getting, and adding additional fans is a must as its not the most breathable case and she will overheat with only the stock rear fan.

ASUS STRIX GD30 REPUBLIC OF GAMERS

Wish it had a 1070 not a 1060 at this price I can only play for honor at medium graphics it really s ucks. When the Hard drives fill the computer doesn't automatically put games on to your SSD so you need to figure that out. It seems to pop up a Celsius warning at times and popes up that the desktop was fixing a problem and my game froze blue only once it happen. The desktop looks great overall.

ASUS monitor Asus desktop

I've had it for a few months now no problems runs fast boot up is instant just a little while to boot the software for keyboard and mouse. Web browsing is quick enough get the right monitor and window tabbing shouldn't be an issue. Looks good with my white set up that I'm going for without it wouldn't look the way it is even if I had another white desktop just doesn't beat the look. Aegis software to light up motherboard is nice. It has a nice headphone hanger to put on the side of the desktop its very convenient. Its got a good size on it not to small not to big fits on my desk which is pretty long without an issue with my ASUS minitor.

Problems from day 1, unhelpful ASUS support

This computer promised fast charging via USB-C port, however this was not happening at all. Expect it to charge your devices in 3 hours when it should only take 45 minutes. Windows Explorer constantly stops working (Start menu freezing, etc). ASUS suggested I reformat the computer and re-install Windows. This did not solve the issue, and they stopped replying to me. It's now past the 14 day return period and I'm stuck with an expensive computer that I have to reboot every hour. Perhaps I just got a defective unit, but since I can't return it for another I'll never know. If you get this, don't bother with ASUS support - return it on the first sign of trouble because support will just run you around.

Never seen before

A lot of computers out there that i can't decide i really like and end up bringing it back until i found this. Going to keep this one for good because it has more to offer in the aegis software that the desktop comes with it color changes also and the wicked design on the side which people always say they've never seen before.

Budget gaming desktop with a new proccesser in my eyes

the review that people put on here are all hating because of it not being black and orange it has a strix motherboard and the desktop is completly good how can you hate and the graphics card is good enough for budget purposes this is more of a budget gaming desktop with a new i7 7700 proccesser. if you want something amazing throw a 1080 ti in this desktop and ur up to date.

good for gaming loud noises

Sure it can run games no problem but if Idk what it is with the loud noises it makes when you first turn it on is it the installation when you first set it up or its the desktop itself. It is not quiet at all not silent its loud to just describe though it looks pretty good.

Best base computer for value

I have researched a number of computer offerings. This by far has the best base setup..picked one up the other day and I can say I am extremely satisfied. Playing WOW at 80Fps - turn up to ultra is amazing. Overwatch is great! Lesser computer sell for more. Finally room for upgrading and personalization Well done. ASUS.

Only has 1060 3GB and 300W power supply

Nice looking case, great CPU but only has a 300W power supply. Nvidia recommends a minimum 400W supply for the GTX 1060. A 500W supply would be better to allow for future upgrades.

Great desktop and stylish

Fan NOISE IS a bit loud but most gaming desktops are. Very cool design for an ASUS desktop they don't have many that are good for the budget at this price you cant go wrong its cool stylish big side window has a slick look that most don't. Ive never seen the side panel have this pattern look thing to it. I like it.

buy it

It's a shame i don't have a pair of headphones those STRIX headphones that were shown in the pic should of been with the desktop other than that this desktop is great i wouldn't rate it 2 star just because there aren't strix headphones is what it shows and a 1060 is good enough so it doesn't matter buy it.

ASUS lacks for built desktops

ASUS lacks for built desktops either overpriced or to cheap with cheap specs. This isn't a bad desktop though i cant say it is. But it couldv'e had the latest specs aand graphics so i can't give this desktop a 5 star sorry ASUS i've moved on :/
